Hi team, I have just had another let down with my WHS 2011 HP Proliant home server and am over it. I of course run DrivePool on the box but now that the OS SSD is failing to boot I want to know if I can install Windows 10 Pro as the OS and then recover all of my drive pool data? My plan would be to disconnect all of the data pool HDD (x 4), install Windows 10 Pro to the OS SSD and then install Drive Pool (assuming that the version for WHS that I purchased will also allow me to use it on Win 10) and then hopefully reconnect all of my data HDDs, reboot and watch the magic happen as DP rebuilds my stuff....Am I dreaming? Has anyone migrated their OS to Win 10 and used DP to reassemble and retain their data pool? I also plan to use VEEAM Endpoint Backup to cover my client computer backup tasks - if you have feedback for that I would value it. TIA for your input, cheers
Hi there! I wanted to inquire about the process about potentially upgrading/migrating my server from Windows Home Server 2011 to Windows 10. I'm very happy with how the StableBit products have been working with WHS2011, it has been a great Steam Mirror/Plex/File backup server for me and all of my files are protected! However with the home server product line being discontinued and as I look towards the future, I think I may want to be proactive rather than reactive about keeping my HTPC updated and secure. Also now that the server edition prices are much higher, I feel like I don't really use the server features all that much, so a standard home edition would be fine (mainly media streaming and file storage). From all the reading I've done it seems like the Windows 10 support is fairly good, although I do see some bugs popping up here and there, and I guess I just wanted to get some confirmation before I did anything drastic. I know it's been stated a few times, but as of today, is the latest DrivePool beta stable enough to store pictures/videos/movies/tv shows etc. on Windows 10? Same question for the Scanner product, is it working well in Windows 10? Is this the correct upgrade process?Un-register the DrivePool / Scanner licenses on the current server Install Windows 10 on the HTPC with a full wipe & clean install on the SSD hard drive (not the data HDDs) Install DrivePool/Scanner on the new Windows 10 installation, the attached drives should be automatically recognized and rebuilt. By "downgrading" from a server edition to a home edition, am I losing any functionality with DrivePool / Scanner? Am I overlooking anything not mentioned here? Thanks in advance for the help!
Team, I am current running (or was ...) PoolHD with one Drive Pool containing two physical disks. That Drive Pool contained two top level directories: "Duplicated" and "Non Duplicated" i.e. PoolHD balanced the non duplicated files across both disks and the duplicated files, duplicated across both disks. I have now upgraded to W10 and PoolHD no longer works - I expected this, as it is not supported in W10 - and I had always intended to migrate to DrivePool because Windows Storage Spaces requires the drives (that are to be added to a Storage Space) to be cleanly formatted, and of course, I can't do that, because the drives contain data. Now, just like DrivePool, PoolHD stores the files in standard NTFS directories - and even gives advice on how to migrate from DrivePool to PoolHD by changing directory names to match the DrivePool naming conventions. Before purchasing DrivePool, I have downloaded a trial and have created a new Pool, but DrivePool will only add physical disks to the DrivePool pool, that have not previously been in a PoolHD pool. i.e. DrivePool doesn't see the two physical disks that were part of a PoolHD pool, even though both the drives effectively only contain a standard NTFS file structure and PoolHD is uninstalled. Remembering that I effectively have two physical drives that contain two top level directories - one which balances the contents of that directory across both drives and the other (the duplicated directory) that has identical content on both drives, how can I add them to a DrivePool pool? [Note: I guess that the secret is in the naming of some directories in the root of each drive, that indicates to DrivePool that it should steer well clear, but these are only directory names, so quite happy to edit them as necessary.] Thanks in advance, Woody.
